PITTSBURGH – Monday night is going to be an amazing night for sky watchers as the moon will have a little more light and size tonight.
The pink full moon should be visible throughout our area with only a few clouds from time to time. The moon is named for the herb pink moss, which blooms in full bloom in the eastern United States in April.
Did you catch a glimpse of the pink supermoon tonight? 🌙 Fortunately there are very small clouds and it is still over 50 degrees. Here is a picture that one of our forecasters was able to take in the office: pic.twitter.com/BVPgDbVnQQ
